Listen to “Discovering Inner Self”.
Self-discovery is a life-long process. It’s the gradual discovery of who we are, our potential, our purpose in life, and what core principles guide us along the way.
It is an internal process of removing obsolete ideas and habits, wrong concepts, and erroneous beliefs and ideas about life. It is a process of widening the horizons of our consciousness and attempting to understand inner truths. In this process, we reduce negative and limiting habits, thoughts and beliefs, and let our inner selves manifest.
From time to time, we all should take a break and focus on ourselves. We must reprogram all of the emotional, mental and physical mental habits that no longer serve us.
Sometimes we come to a point when the things we do just don’t make sense anymore. To come to a dead-end and feel burned-out emotionally, trapped in a vacuum of emptiness, it’s time to start asking ourselves where our lives are going and how to find a balance, meaning and energy.
Balance involves aligning Body, Mind, Spirit & Focus to create a harmonious connection with these four aspects of self. When in balance and grounded, we are aligned, focused on our goal, potential, inner power, and strength.
Nothing is more important than using your limited time and energy on earth to do the things you love and enjoy. It is possible to live life happily, feeling good about yourself and the world around you. It mostly comes from a state of mind. Being happy, peaceful, and content requires us to make conscious decisions and some everyday actions.
Here are some steps you can make towards inner self-discovery:
Meditation is a great way to look inward by paying attention to your inner experiences. These can be thoughts, sensations or emotions. Anything that passes through the mind is the internal stimuli that you pay attention to. While many mindfulness practices are done in stillness, it’s not the only way. Sometimes your body requires movement to be calm.
Define Negative beliefs
Many of us can remember being told as a child by a teacher, parent, or coach that we didn’t have the ability to do something. These unwholesome statements can stay with us in our conscious or subconscious minds and slowly become reinforced throughout our lives.
When we can deal with negative messages and replace them with positive statements, we can construct more adaptable and hopeful narratives about who we are and what we can accomplish. Put simply, we can change what we feel and think about ourselves by presenting ourselves with more encouraging statements and ideas.
Create a positive self-image
Your self-image is your perception of the sort of person you think you are. Our self-images start forming at an early age and can take over our entire lives if we let them. The good news is, whatever has been programmed in can be deprogrammed or reprogrammed.
Your relationship with yourself is the most defining factor in shaping the kind of life you live. The less you love yourself, listen to yourself, and understand yourself, the more confused, angry, and frustrating your reality will be.
Remember, you are good enough! And you can become the best version of yourself: stronger, healthier, happier and more confident.
In a broad sense, Connectedness is considered a key mediator of psychological, mental and spiritual well-being. An ecosystem is a delicate balance of interdependent life forms. And we humans are part of it. When we learn we are part of the web of life, and that each of us impacts others’ lives and depends on the wellness of others to thrive, we begin to approach the mutuality and interconnectedness of nature. And realise our true nature.
